Join us for a fabulous trip to Australia! We'll stop first in New Zealand where we'll visit Rotorua know for its geothermal activity and Maori culture. Our Maori guide will take us through the bubbling pools of mud, crystal springs and geysers of the spectacular area. We'll then head to the Maori Village for a traditional Hangi Feast. While in New Zealand we will also enjoy a skyline gondola ride and see a jade carving demonstration. It's on to Australia next - we'll hop on a plane in Auckland and head to Brisbane, Australia, also known as the Sunshine Coast! Here we will take a ferry to Fraser Island, stepping stone to the Great Barrier Reef. We'll spend some time at Surfer's Paradise and visit the Underwater World Oceanarium. From here we head to Sydney where we'll enjoy a bird's-eye view of the city from the observation deck of Sydney Tower - the tallest building south of the Equator. We'll snap pictures at the Opera House and stop on Bondi Beach to get up close to kangaroos and koalas at Sydney Wildlife World.
